Liz has been reading Art And Soul by Claire Huston

50315513. sy475

The best romance is one which grows out of friendship, but will Becky Watson ever find common ground with morose, grumpy artist, Charlie Handren?  Becky is returning to her job as a life coach and fixer of crises, after her maternity leave, and as a single mother she needs this major contract to augment her other job as the invisible fairy godmother at weddings, calming family tensions.  Living in the Comptons, a wealthy, upmarket area in the south of England with a strong artistic tradition, it would be a triumph if she could help Charlie to regain his ability to paint after 6 years lamenting his failed marriage. Arranging an exhibition to relaunch his career does not phase Becky, but helping him to woo Rachel Stone, the woman he…

Liz has been reading The Winter Companion by Mimi Matthews

48123163. sy475

Mimi Matthews is, in my opinion, quite the best author of historical romance writing today.  The stories in the Parish Orphans of Devon, complement each other in the way that the friendship of the four young men also does.  Each has noble qualities and failings, with which their new partners will support them.  At first Neville Cross might seem a less dynamic hero than his former friends but his strong physique and gentle relationship with horses make him very attractive.  In contrast our heroine, Clara, seems confident and highly intelligent. But each have problems to deal with.  After a traumatic accident, Neville struggles with communication while Clara must earn a living to support her brother at university.

This novel unites all the Parish Orphans of the previous books at…

Rosie’s #BookReview Of #Contemporary Ranch-Themed #Romance MY GIRL by Jacquie Biggar

Rosie Amber

My Girl (Gambling Hearts #3)My Girl by Jacquie Biggar

3.5 stars

My Girl is book three of The Gambling Hearts series of Texas ranch-themed romances. Aaron Shaughnessy once had his heart broken by the girl he loved. Now she has come back to his family’s dude ranch, but she’s brought her fiancé with her.

Trish Sylvester was surprised when her family arranged a week’s holiday on the ranch, especially after her break-up with Aaron. Seeing him again stirs up all her hidden emotions and makes her question why she left him.

This is a pleasant easy read clean romance. A couple of times I would have enjoyed time spent building a few more layers around the main characters so that I could really empathise with them, but that is just my personal preference in this genre. I liked the author’s notes at the end of the book where she hoped that the setting would…

Sandra has been reading Love, Look Away by Lisette Brodey

48415672. sy475

Set in Swansea (New York not Wales), like her previous novel Molly Hacker is Too Picky!, this is the story of Sage Gordon who owns the gift shop, Sage Earth Gifts. It is not a sequel but does feature some of the same characters. We see the world through Sage’s eyes, and at the start of the book she is not in a good place.

The book opens with a ‘difficult’ customer causing a scene and introduces the other main character, Godiva Genevieve Jones. The two women bond over their recent romantic troubles and become firm friends really quickly. Running through the story is the mystery of Sage’s childhood friend, Jimmy, who just disappeared in the night and was never heard from again. She has tried…

Hate the Game by Holly Hall book review

So I have taken some time off from reviewing and have been reading for pleasure. Recently, I came across this book that immediately caught my attention and I was hooked from the first page. This must read book is called……………drum-roll-clip-art-clipartall-drum-roll-clip-art-640_350

Hate the Game by Holly Hall!!

51yGRkpqVkL

Hate the Game is a story about Ava, a relationship consultant by day,  single woman by night, who puts her heart into finding love for others. Ava, like all of us, has been hurt from a previous relationship and isn’t quite ready for love. So, you know what they say…..

Sometimes when you least expect it, love comes right to your front door. It has never happened to me but I also do not live in an apartment building like Ava. Side note: one of things that made this book come to life for me is that it is set in the heart of Chicago. Coincidentally, I was actually in Chicago when I was reading this book, but lets get back to Ava…..Ava coincidentally runs into Theo in her apartment building one night after coming home from work.

Ava is given an assignment at work that Theo’s career makes for an ideal opportunity for them to spend more time together and their relationship starts to bloom. However, nothing is as it seems……does love conquer all? You will have to read the book!

This book is very well written and the story line is very exciting. I really enjoyed reading this book as it had a plot twist I didn’t see coming. I give this book four “sumo wrestlers”. See rating system here. You can purchase the book on Amazon and it is available for free if you have Kindle Unlimited.

Special thanks for the author, Holly Hall, for giving me this book for free in exchange for an honest review. My review is solely based on my opinions of the book and are 100% my own.
